Chinese yard Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (DSIC) is working flat out to meet the schedule for delivering the floating production, storage and offloading vessel destined for Norwegian oil giant Equinor’s Bacalhau pre-salt development offshore Brazil.

Industry sources said the yard in Dalian city is ready to complete and deliver the hull and living quarters of the FPSO in April.

This is despite some of the modules being built by Chinese yard Bomesc Offshore Engineering not being ready for delivery until June.
